What do you get in our EoSDH/EoSONET dataset?

EoSDH/EoSONET refers to a Layer 2 dedicated, point-to-point Ethernet private line transport service delivered over a SDH or SONET circuit. In this module, we focus on long-haul city-to-city routes between major global business centers.

EoSDHEoSONET Search PS

Both domestic and international routes are covered in our list of tracked and surveyed routes. Price points for this service are meant to refer to the core transport network service itself between two carrier points-of-presence. Any additional local access, cross connect, or other bundled services are not included in this service; the transport alone is reflected in the collected price points.

Currently, there are more than 150 routes in the database that are actively tracked. Users can locate prices for connections to Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Central America, and South America.

How does TeleGeography collect and manage its pricing data?

TeleGeography directly surveys service providers, carriers, and internet backbone operators. Our team also collates public information gathered from service provider websites.

These efforts have resulted in millions of data points that live across our databases. Individual pricing figures are refreshed on a rolling basis; customers are notified after substantial updates to our datasets. We also let our users know when our analysis has been refreshed.

TeleGeography’s pricing data is unique in its geographic scope and its full range of capacity options (2 Mbp through GigE or 10GigE).  We know the carrier eco-system. We understand the WAN technology. And we have historic records of data that others simply do not have.

Who uses TeleGeography's pricing data?

We've provided pricing expertise to thousands of service providers, enterprises, equipment makers, investors, and governments.

Our data is used by carrier product teams to track trends and ensure that their price book matches the market.

These tools are also used by end users as a discovery resource, particularly those looking to add sites in unfamiliar geographies or upgrade capacity at existing sites. They look at our trend data—sourced across many providers through long-term relationships—to assess how the market may have changed over the period of their contract and how they might optimize their spend to get more capacity.  

Through our work, enterprises looking to transform their WAN—perhaps by adding additional capacity through internet/broadband, upgrading MPLS connections, or using SD-WAN on top of a hybrid underlay network—can get a full view of the options for improving their experience.
